YouTube renews YouTube Kids app

Friday 3 November 2017 | 08:44 CET | News
YouTube renewed its YouTube Kids app by adding kid profiles, new parental controls, and a new look. Upon signing in with their Google account, parents get kid profiles to customise their kids' experience; app design tailored to their kid's age; a new setup process, as well as a passcode for kids which parents can override. End-users can block videos if they think these should not be in the app and flag these for review.
